HON. JAMES L. COLLINS

The marriage of Judge Collins occurred in Polk county in 1861, Miss Mary Whiteaker becoming his wife. She was born in De Kalb county, Ill., in 1846, the daughter of Benjamin Whiteaker, who was one of the pioneers of Polk county in 1847, and a relative of John Whiteaker, the first governor of Oregon. Mrs. Collins died in 1864, leaving one daughter, Nellie, who is a graduate of La Creole Academy, the state normal school at Monmouth, and the New York state normal college at Oswego, N. Y. She is now critic in the state normal school at Madison, S. D., which position she has occupied for the past ten years.

169 12 years old in 1900 Census.

Another source states his name is Raleigh Monroe Davenport. This source also states Raleigh was a son of Belle Alleica Baker and Rodolphus Henry Davenport. From his age this is very possible. In 1900 Census Mary was 27, Righley was 12. If Mary was his mother she would have been only 15 when he was born. [Source: Whitley Davenport, CA]

170 1299 "Summoned" as 1st Baronet Lord Strange of Knockin

The Barony of Strange of Hunstanton started as a branch of the original Strange (Le Strange) family and the Barony of Knockin (Knockyn) in Shropshire, on the border (frontier or "marches") of Wales. The Strange family was one of those charged with containing the border area with the wild Celts of Wales, who would revolt against the Normans periodically. Hunstanton is in Norfolk, and Strange (Le Strange) lines were there from the generation or two before the Norman conquest in 1066. The Le Stranges are associated with the Celtic-Norman counts and Dukes of Brittany.

SKAGGS-D Digest V99 #110, 10/19/99, Henry SKAGGS' Burial Site. An AKERS researcher sent a clipping from "The Kentucky Explorer" magazine, October 1999 issue, that features an article about the efforts of the South Central Kentucky Historical Society to mark forgotten cemeteries in the area. This article has a photo of society volunteers who have placed a sign on or near the burial place of Henry SKAGGS, the Long Hunter, located on the property of former Kentucky Governor Louie NUNN, at Hiseville Park, KY. The site is in Barren Co., KY, and near Green Co., KY, where Henry SKAGGS and Charles SKAGGS' wills are filed.

Henry SKAGGS m. Mary THOMPSON, d/o John THOMPSON and Mary (unknown). I am interested in exchanging information with anyone who might know where Henry's brother, Charles SKAGGS and his wife, Lucy THOMPSON, might be buried. Mary and Lucy are sisters of my ancestor, Archibald THOMPSON, b. 1736, who left a diary, transcripts and index of which can be seen at Doug Moore's home page at http://www.public.asu.edu/~moore

The SKAGGS and THOMPSON families were in Montgomery and Tazewell Counties, VA, in the mid-1700s and settled in Kentucky on the Green and Cumberland Rivers before 1800.

Lived at Slash Branch Of Little Brush Creek, KY.

There was a grand jury indictment in Green Co. KY against him on May 5, 1795 for saying "God Damm" in the winter of 1795.

"Reed and Related Families of Tazewell County, Virginia and McDowell County, West Virginia", by Juanita S Halstead.

Records in Green County, KY show that Moses Skaggs, a brother to Lydia and Henry, took up land there in the late 1700's. He (Moses) was killed by the Indians, but his wife lived on this land for some time after his demise. A litigation over this estate names his heirs who were brothers and sisters, as well as nieces and nephews. Moses and His wife had no children. It was the file on
this case which gave us proof of our family connections.

There was a big court case over dispostion of his property after his death since he had no heirs.
